Staten Island Foundation
Special Projects Fund
March 2013 – October 2014
Staten Island’s shore neighborhoods were some of the most severely impacted in the region by Hurricane Sandy.
Local service organizations were on the front line responding to those devastated by the storm, despite the fact that many of these same organizations and their staff members were also storm victims. The Staten Island Foundation (SIF) is committed to supporting nonprofit service providers and strengthening their capacity to continue to meet the long-term challenges caused by this disaster. SIF created The Staten Island Foundation Nonprofit Disaster Recovery Fund (the Fund) to help nonprofits serving Staten Island address immediate relief needs and long-term recovery efforts. NYSHealth awarded a grant to SIF to bolster its health-related recovery mission and strengthen its ability to leverage funding opportunities for the State Island community.
